    Like most artists, Elizabeth Kirkwood appreciates the beauty to be found in nature, but she brings a different eye to her interpretations.

  • Celebrating our railroad heritage

    By Helen E. McKinney

    Oldham County History Center

    Oldham County has always been an enterprising county. Town lots were set aside in La Grange in 1827, with founding fathers realizing the potential of future growth and knowing how important transportation was to their tiny town.

    Many times visitors to the Oldham County History Center and Peyton Samuel Head Family Museum ask if the town was built first or the railroad. It’s reminiscent of which came first: the chicken or the egg?

  • Boys and Girls State participants honored

    The American Legion Oldham County Post #39 presented four senior students, who attended Kentucky 2014 Boys or Girls State, certificates of appreciation at their October meeting.

    Representatives from Oldham County High School were Jeremy Dodson and Molly Kate Stephens. From South Oldham High School were Jacob Herold and Erika Laws.
